I love book stores and I just discovered that Peoria is home to one of Central Illinois largest independent book stores that stocks over 120,000 titles. The store is called The Book Nook and its been in business for over seven years. Put on your reading glasses, because that’s today’s booked destination!
The store is just about a five minute drive from where I live, so that's handy.
The entrance is that-a-way...
And so it's that-a-way we go!
Hmm...the entrance is through a glass window? This could be a little challenging.
Luckily, before I crashed through the window, I turned and saw this door. You can put away your first aid kits for now.
They're open, so let's go check this place out.
Wow, this place is packed with books!
Here's the owner of the store, Mike. He's owned and operated this bookstore for over seven years and invited us to look around.
So let's look at some of these books!
As you can see, they stock all kinds of titles in here.
Here's some boxes of books for easy readers.
And there's audio books if you prefer to listen instead of read.
In addition to books, The Book Nook also has a whole wall of DVD's.
There's lots of Harry Potter editions in here. I wonder if Harry is any relation to Fleming Potter? (Old workplace joke alert.)
Bombshell Beauties, ooh la la!
Well, I think I've found today's purchase!
Check it out, free bookmarks!
I chose this one.
Mike bags up the book...
And it's out the door...
